Green peas par boiled- 1/4 cup
Carrot finely chopped and par boiled- 1/4 cup

Heat 1 tsp oil in a small pan, when hot add the fennel seeds, onion and green chilli, saute for a min and remove pan from heat. In a large bowl combine mashed potatoes, par boiled beans, carrots, green peas, sauted onion and green chilli mixture and required salt. Mix well the potato mixture and divide the mixture into equal sized balls. In a small bowl combine maida and water, whisk well to form smooth and thin paste. Spread bread crumbs on plate. Flatten each ball into discs, first dip the cutlets in the maida batter and then coat with bread crumbs generously. For more crispier cutlets once again dip the bread crumb coated cutlets in maida batter and again generously coat with bread crumbs( this double coating of bread crumbs makes cutlet more crispier). Once cutlets are coated with bread crumbs, refrigerate cutlets for 1 hour. Heat enough oil in a pan to deep fry, drop the cutlets carefully into hot oil and fry till golden brown, serve hot with tomato sauce or chutney of your choice.
